Easter Events in the Pymble Parish

This material is a record of the Pymble Parish Easter week events of 2020.

Easter is a time that is set apart in the liturgical year for our spiritual renewal. During Easter, we centre our attention on the Sacred Paschal Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday). The Sacred Paschal Triduum is the central liturgical celebration of the Catholic Church. The three liturgies of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil are, in fact, one continuous liturgy that commemorates the passion, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Holy Week and Easter Celebrations

The Holy Week and Easter celebrations are the most important celebrations in the liturgical calendar. During this period we celebrate the proclamation of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This year, we will be celebrating these important days in a very different way after the coronavirus has closed our churches and restricted us from gathering as a community of faith. The Parish will video stream these celebrations and we invite you to join in and pray together.

All of this material will be available as video via the Parish Youtube Channel. Live events are scheduled as shown below.

Holy Week and Easter Liturgies at home

We have a collection of material to encourage Holy Week and Easter celebrations at home. We hope that, in some way, these resources will bring hope, joy and comfort to our parishioners as, together, we navigate our way through this difficult period.

Note that this material is not intended to be a full liturgical solution. The purpose of this material is to provide a starting point for further exploration of the scriptures and of the many online resources already available.

Feel free to download and/or share this material with fellow parishioners and families.
